For such a small state, Massachusetts has one of the nation’s largest state park and forest systems, providing an abundance of recreational opportunities for residents, especially those renting Boston apartments. From water sports to hiking trails, cross country skiing to camping, not to mention biking, horseback riding and white water rafting, Boston and the surrounding townships have much to offer in the way of outdoor activity.
Apartments to rent in and around Boston will put you in close proximity to these locales, to name just a few:
- Concord – Just outside of the Metro Boston area, this stately New England town is a wonderful site for canoeing and enjoying the brilliant fall colors New England is known for.
- Charles RIver – The river is a haven for racing sculls and sailboats, and if you follow it downstream outside Boston, the river flows through a peaceful countryside that is ideal for a quiet canoe ride.
- Minuteman Bikeway – This winding path through scenery both rural and suburban is a workout and a history lesson, as it roughly parallels the route of Paul Revere’s infamous midnight ride.
